Reflection On The Las Vegas Massacre: A Poem

Deep down we’ve always known that TV commercial ad slogans no matter how catchy
were not conveyors of genuine truth
As one ad slogan for Las Vegas Tourism which became so catchy
It even became a line in Hollywood movies
has now crumbled
With lives lost and wounds lasting
We now know
that what happened in Vegas
won’t stay in Vegas.

    It came from an unholy place, inside a wretched man’s heart, and so is brought into the lives of countless innocents.

    It is awful what has happened. It is true when they say guns don’t kill people do but if they are holding that gun while messed up in the head this is the devastating results. Which results in needless tragedy.

      Yes, not that many people would have been killed had he used knives.

      The gun loving lobby NRA (who love big guns to make up for their small phalluses) won’t allow any tough gun control laws to happen.

        Are you in Canada or America? Curious as asked Malkie if he knew?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Canada.

        Beautiful, though I have only seen it in photographs or in films.

        I’m going to try writing a book together based on my characters Adnama and Alex.

    This horrific tragedy has rocked me to the core. 😦
    Also, I had a family member die recently. (I shared about it in my last blog)
    With the funeral, family gatherings, etc., it’s been a busy and very sad time.
    (((HUGS)))

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      So sorry to hear about that, Carolyn. 😦

      I will check out your blog when I have time.

      It’s been a busy week with Canadian Thanksgiving being this weekend.

      • doesitevenmatter3 said,

        Happy Thanksgiving!!!
        (((HUGS))) πŸ™‚

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Thanks, Carolyn. πŸ™‚

        For the first time in 7 years since my dad died, someone actually invited me to Thanksgiving dinner.

        So for the first time in 8 years (the last –Thanksgiving 2009), I didn’t spend Thanksgiving alone.

      • doesitevenmatter3 said,

        I’m so glad! πŸ™‚

        Thanks, Carolyn. πŸ™‚
